I'll also add that, after comparing our photos, I think the seal and russet aren't THAT far apart color-wise. If it's in the shade, my russet can look like seal. The Liberty russet is a medium-dark russet, and the seal is a light, chocolatey seal.
Yes, I'd agree with those descriptions. Thats why I like BK's russet. But I would say that they are quiet different in colour.
I still have samples from late last year, russet, seal and dark seal (Apparently there's a new dark seal).
This is a repro . They were around about 5 years ago and fairly cheap , but it’s hard to find a nice one these days, that’s an accurate reproduction since What Price Glory discontinued selling them .
